    Default Dates: of PGM

    Can anybody give me the dates of PGM?

    This is all I could find in BDAG: PGM = Papyri Graecae Magicae: Die griechischen Zauberpapyri, I 1928, II 1931, ed. KPreisendanz; 2d ed. AHenrichs 1973-74; III, with index, ed. KP. with EDiehl/SEitrem 1941; esp. significant are nos. 1 and 2 (=PBerlin 5025; 5026), 3 (PMimaut), 4 (Paris Magic Pap.), 5 (PLond 46), 7 (PLond 121), 12 (PLeid V), 13 (PLeid. W), 36 (POslo 1). For details s. HBetz, ed., The Greek Magical Papyri in Translation Including the Demotic Spells 1986, p. xliv.

    I don't think there is a date in there.

    Include a reference and/or link if possible.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean the date of the original texts themselves? I imagine it will differ quite a bit depending on what the specific papyrus is... See for instance the Wikipedia entry.

    Yes, I meant for the original texts themselves. I'm looking for the range of the dates. I found the wikipedia entry, but wasn't sure how reliable it was. I wanted to check with my scholarly cyber-buddies!

    Well as far as I know the range on Wikipedia would be as standard an answer as any. See for instance also here.

    Thanks Michael!

    Not that I don't trust wikipedia, but it's nice to get confirmation.

    Thanks for your help!
